Hello and welcome.

One thing to remember is to always find your niche and go from there.

Another tip when putting our deals and marketing together is this little phrase.... Differentiate or die.

And a must do is ask lots of questions and talk to lots of people who are already doing good business on the internet... There's a great business website for people doing business online at Link hidden: Login to view There is lots of goode info there and a great forum and best of all live chat. You will learn lots about onlone business from that community.

Thanks

try to find items that others are not selling. The latest andhottest items are usually hard to aquire. You will often spend a lot of time researching and will get knowwhere. Try to find items that people want and use but arent in top demand.

:oops: Sorry its taken me awhile to write back.No I am not having a great deal of luck myself.I have found a few aussie websites informative but salehoo isnt really the best for Australians as it mainly has wholesalers for USA.I must agree with the other two replies in that try to focus on things you know people want and not the most popular trend.I have purchased toys etc but not the craze for today type just ones that my kids enjoyed and know that are still wanted.They have sold well although it took me ages to find a wholesaler.Also I have gone around shops looked at products and contacted manufacturers.My advice though is to hang in there,be determined like I am to make it work.

:oops: Sorry forgot to tell you I have found some companies wanting me to have an ABN and some not.Its just a matter of emailing and asking.Also alot of the companies on salehoo that I contacted regrading PS2 games etc dont provide either for buying wholesale or our region

yes. Research is key but make sure your invested time will reflect your return.

Just be cautious, do what makes sense, and talk to and learn from others.
